    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I think I remember reading that some people on here homeschool their kids. I'm looking for some GOOD online resources to look into doing this. I would love some recommendations; where do I start researching homeschooling?

When I homeschooled, most of the resources I used were specifically Catholic .... if you're not Catholic, they would be no help to you at all. :) Let me know if you want them.

Hi I HS my 3 children, ages 7,4, and almost 3yr olds. I just started last year. At first it is a good idea to look at your state's HSing laws. http://www.nhen.org/ you can look your state up there and here are a few other links that might be helpful. I now have to take soy out of her diet to see if her symptoms go away again, and I cannot imagine how hard it is for those families with kids in school. She seems to be so sensitive too, any little crumb ect, brings on a ton of symptoms.

What state do you live in? I hs my 3 kids, and our state has an online homeschool program that's FREE. It's really, really comprehensive, and they send you everything from microscopes to phonics tiles in addition to all the other stuff. It's technically a public school, which is why it's free...but you can also purchase it if your state doesn't offer the program. It's called K12 and you can check it out at www.k12.com and see what you think.

There are tons of other programs out there, I've used several others as well. If you're totally starting new, you might want to start with a program like K12 or Alpha Omega (it's Christian, though...so that's up to you) that lays out your plans and has everything ready to go. As you go along, you'll find some other great resources and you may want to pick and choose a program that fits your child individually. Here are some other resources we've used:

Singapore math

EPGY math (Stanford university's online program)

Alpha Omega

Spelling Power (great book!)

Teach Your Child to Read in 100 easy lessons (great for beginning readers! So easy.)

Saxon Homeschool math

What ages are your kids? I can probably give you some other ideas based on age if you'd like.

Check out the boards at mothering.com. There is an entire homeschooling section with tons of info. Almost too much so that you don't know where to start. Our state also offers free cyber school. Including the computer, internet, books, etc.

Thank you all for your help! This is some great info to look through! This is my daughter's first year of preschool and I'm already getting really frustrated with how gluteny school is. :(

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
